    • Crea%ng  awesome  learning   environments   Lyn  Ross  
    • The  90s  
    • Then  and  now   The  90s   Now  
    • The  90s   Now  
    • The  Internet    
    • •  Mobile  devices   •  Apps  for  everything  
    •     We  have  to  make  sure  that    school  is  not  an  alterna%ve  reality   for  our  students   What  skills  and  knowledge  do  you  want  your  students   to  have  when  they  leave  your  class  at  the  end  of  this   year?  
    • Learning  and  Teaching   18th 19th 20th Centuries Focus: Teacher led Approach: Content driven Emphasis: Knowing that… Teacher Role: Expert and boss (the sage) 21st Century Student centred Process driven Knowing how… Fellow learner and facilitator (the guide) Are  you  the  sage  on  the  stage     or  the  guide  on  the  side?  
    • To  share  some  ideas  for  crea%ng  awesome   learning  environments  
    • What  research  tells  us  about  learning   •  Learning  is  much  more  than  acquiring  new   knowledge  and  concepts.  It  involves  thinking,   but  learners  need  knowledge  and  experiences   to  think  with.   •  Learners  need  to  be  ac6vely  engaged  in  ways   that  allow  them  to  process,  interpret,  and   adapt  an  experience.  
    • •  Learners  have  to  want  to  learn.     They  have  to  see  a  purpose  to  learning  and  how  it  will  allow   them  to  contribute  to  something  beyond  themselves.   •  Learners  have  to  feel  in  charge  of  their  own   learning   and  to  get  a  sense  of  flow  and  progress,  with  the  right  amount   of  challenge  and  feedback  along  the  way.   •  Learners  need  to  develop  in-­‐depth  knowledge     in  some  areas  to  help  them  keep  learning.  
    • •  Learners  need  to  be  encouraged  to  search   not  for  the  right  answer  (focusing  on  surface  features)  but   for  the  right  approach  to  solving  a  problem  (deep   structures).   •  Learning  involves  interac6on     trying  out  and  tes%ng  ideas  with  others.   •  Learning  usually  needs  structure   For  example,  adults  play  an  important  role  in  young  children’s   development  by  structuring  their  experiences  and  direc%ng   their  aNen%on  to  certain  aspects  of  those  experiences.  
    • •  Learning  needs  to  take  place  in  a  wide  variety   of  se=ngs     so  that  learners  can  transfer  their  learning  and  use  it  in  new   contexts.   •  Intelligence  is  not  fixed  but  is  expandable   through  learning  experiences.       Expanding  people’s  intellectual  capacity  –   and  ability  to  keep  learning  –  should  be  the   key  func6on  of  a  future-­‐oriented  educa6on   system.  
    • What  can  be  used  to  engage  learners?       Learners  have  to  want  to  learn      
    •     People  some%mes  link  twenty-­‐first  century  learning  with   developments  in  informa%on  and  communica%on   technology  (ICT).       However,  learning  in  the  21  C  involves  more  than  digital   technology.      ICT  has  the  poten%al  to  transform  how  we  learn  and   how  we  teach,  but  it  can  also  be  used  to  support   outmoded  teaching  and  learning  approaches.      
    • Themes  for  21  Century  Learning   •  Personalisa%on   •   Rethinking  learners’  and  teachers’  roles   •  Knowledge  (not  a  ‘thing’,  but  something  that  does  stuff)   •  New  views  of  equity,  diversity  and  inclusivity   •  A  culture  of  con%nuous  learning  for  teachers   and  educa%onal  leaders   •  New  kinds  of  partnerships  and  rela%onships     Suppor6ng  future-­‐oriented  learning  and  teaching  –  a  New  Zealand  perspec6ve     ~  Rachel  Bolstad  and  Jane  Gilbert  
    • Personalisa%on     Providing  more  choices  and  pathways  for  learners.   Building  the  system  around  the  learner   •  Knowing  who  your  learners  are   •  Knowing  what  and  to  whom  they  are  connected   •  Provide  flexibly  to  meet  learners’  needs  
    • What  sort  of   learning   environments  are   needed?  
    • G  4  Eastern  HuN  School  
    •  Rethinking  learners’  and  teachers’   roles     •  Twenty-­‐first  century  learners  need  to  be   ac%ve  par%cipants  in  their  own  learning.   •  Inquiry  Learning  
    • Online  environments     Social  networking     Online  tools  (web  2.0)     Google  Docs   Having  an  collabora%ve  online  space  is  the   difference  between  living  in  the  1990s  and   2013  
    • Teachers  who  know  how  to  use   technology  effec%vely  to  help  their   students  connect  and  collaborate   together  online  will  replace  those  who   do  not.     Sheryl  Nussbaum-­‐Beach
